Great service and staff, immaculate hotel
We arrived at the hotel late in the evening, my wife and I, jilted Dubai ex expats decided to rent a car at the airport, and we promptly got lost on the way to the hotel. Let's just say the roads have changed a bit. Spend the extra money for the GPS, if you haven't been to Dubai for awhile take my word for it, you don't know the roads anymore. When we went to the front desk, we were told our room wasn't quite ready yet, not a good start, but we were promptly escorted to a nice place to relax and served tea and sweets, this was nice, I was just happy to sit and relax. When we eventually got to our room, it was very clean, nicely furnished, the mattress was firm, and the carpet looked new, we also paid a little extra for a balcony with a beach view and it didn't disappoint. Our stay was for almost two weeks, and we spent a fair amount of time at the hotel, which included breakfast every morning, dining at the hotel restaurants, spending time at the pools and beach, doing some late night work at the office center, and an evening enjoying live music with old friends at the nite club below. We were quite happy with our stay, I have no complaints other than the short time that we had to wait for our room to be readied when we first arrived, which was no big deal. I must say, the hotel staff was great, always looked happy, quite helpful, professional, and very friendly, 100% of the time, every single one of them. Sorry if I sound like an ad for the hotel, but we had a great time, and we do look forward to staying there again.
